'Workamping' named uncommon source of retirement income
Workamping, or work-camping, allows individuals to stay at campsites for free, in exchange for some good, old-fashioned work. Some workamping gigs even pay minimum wage. This type of work often appeals to retirees and other full-time RVers who want to see the country but need to supplement their income.
Workampers are also called "camp hosts" and their duties can vary from greeting visitors and collecting fees to basic park maintenance and upkeep.
"There's usually a lot of flexibility," president of Recreation Resource Management, Warren Meyer, told the news provider. "Most of these guys don't want to work 60 hours a week."
There are a lot of resources for people looking for camp host opportunities. Perhaps the most popular is probably the website Workamper.com.
